Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief
« on: February 16, 2010, 09:46:54 am »
Take two things: Greek Mythology and Modern America. Mix them up. What do you get? The amazing film that is Percy Jackson.
The gods are still bickering amongst themselves, but Mount Olympus is, believe it or not, on top of the Empire State Building. The Underworld is  in LA, the gods have taken modern twists: Hermes being into advertising, money and business. Ares being your "don't mess with me" Harley Davidson fanatic, Poseidon residing in beach shorts and coral ties and my most favourite of all. Hades being a rock star :)
Camp Half Blood is a place for children of mortal/ God parents. One of these campers is Percy Jackson. Young, naive of his powers, and also ADHD and dyslexic. Enter the mythological beasts: Medusa, Cerberus and many others. Pens that turn into swords, NY Yankees caps that can make you invisible, oh and Grover (a satyr who recruits the demigods as they're called) getting his hooves dirty.
Battles, fun, and the gorgeously divine Logan Lerman (man he is LUSH) make this film one of the best book to film adaptations EVAR. Many reporters say that THIS could be the next Harry Potter. Well after I watched it..... I couldn't agree more.
It takes greek myths and mangles it all up but makes it more appealing to kids.
I cannot wait until the next one (if there will be another)..... did I say that Logan Lerman a.k.a Percy Jackson is the fittest guy EVAR...... ;)
